I am trying to debug a problem involving largish HTTP data transfers

http module.  Has anyone here observed a similar issue or is this not a
problem for others and I should be looking for the problem somewhere
other than the http module?
I did a quick test and was able to do "initrd (http)/initrd" for ~90MB
file using current git. This is under QEMU. Physical hardware may be

OK, knowing that it works in some instances is good. As I have been digging into the problem, it seems to be somewhere other than http. I would elaborate further, but I am still working through why the code is doing what I see on the network.

Another question about the http module. http_establish() builds a GET request that may have a Content-Range header. However, looking at the HTTP/1.1 RFCs, Content-Range is something that appears in a status 206 response, not in a request. The http module shouldn't insert this header, should it?
